I always end up in the city...

Someone called me "cute" yesterday.

I'm hesitant to say that I like that word. Don't get me wrong, I find the word perfectly agreeable--it's always nice to be judged based on how attractive you are--but it has the same connotations that the word "nice" has when used in a similar context. That is, you are a perfectly acceptable example of a human being, quite possibly in the upper half of your sex, but you just aren't "hot" - and therefore you are insignificant in the scheme of things. And that kind of ticks me off. (Perhaps I'm reading a little too far into this?)

I had a French test yesterday that took a forth as long to take as it did to walk to and from campus.

So many papers, so little time... and so very, very much apathy.

My father recited a poem his grandmother told him when he was a child. It was in Russian (well, probably), and I could translate it better than he himself could. (Admittedly, it's been, what, a good 45 years since he last heard it? Oh well...)

I personally don't think I would ever call a guy "hot" to his face unless we were already involved. If I thought a guy was hot I might settle for "cute," but I'm probably a little more reserved than most. Anyway... I definitely think you should take it as a compliment.

Yeah, I definitely wouldn't comment on someone's looks to their face until I got to know them fairly well... I was mainly perturbed that the person said "you're cute" as one of the first sentences we'd exchanged. It was very awkward.
